I was wrapping up my freshman year in college. I had never listened to Contemporary Christian music at that point. I was starting my radio career at my college radio station, where I did a 4 hour shift playing Top 40 music. I would closely following the pop charts to see what new songs were being released, and would watch MTV (the years when the "M' stood for music- playing nothing but music videos).
I remember seeing a song appear on the pop charts called "Find A Way" from this young singer named Amy Grant. I liked it when I first heard it, and was impessed that there was a song that was about God with a catchy tune! That was my intro to Christian music, and to Amy Grant. I loved her sound, and especially that she sang about Jesus! (I would see the music video on MTV from time to time!)
The year was 1985. Now, 35 years later, Amy's album, "Unguarded", is being re-released as a special double disc, white vinyl limited edition album. It will not only feature all of the songs on the original album, but special live performaces and commentary from Amy and more! The album set will be released on October 16th, and be available on all streaming services on October 30th.
Here is the music video of the first single off of that iconic album, "Find A Way".
